The search for Sperm

I’m asking for a friend.  No really, it is a friend that this whole post is in relation to.  I long since accepted that my dream of babies was never going to happen and I have always been oddly comfortable with that.  It’s strange that even the strongest ambition you can have from the youngest […]

An exercise in gratitude

More often than not it is far too easy to become bogged down with the negativity, that sometimes we need to remind ourselves of all of the reasons we have to feel grateful.  The united states have an entire holiday for that purpose (given, that is an overly simplistic meaning of the holiday in itself) […]

A question of sex: the driving force

I have been through many different stages in my life: times where I have had no drive whatsoever, times where I have had what seems to be a regular level of drive and times where I have been climbing the wall like some kind of nymphomaniac.  There are definitely hormonal and mental angles to it […]

Dependency – blessing or curse?

Dependency seems to be one of those things that people fear.  They kinda take it for granted where children are concerned, almost like it was part of the contract that they signed when they decided that they were going to make a mini version of themselves, but don’t seem to realise that it also comes […]

Enter Sandman – the beginning

Every now and then you come across one of those people that you know is going to be a part of your life forever.  Given, it’s not always the most positive thing in the world but there’s something special about knowing that a connection will exist with someone forever, no matter how many gaps of […]

Bigotry in its purest form

I love wordpress.  It’s the avenue I have to let me explore the facets of my mind that I had no idea existed.  It helps me understand who I am and get out all of the thoughts and feelings I have that day.  There is a dark side to that though.  Where it gives me […]

Everybody changes

We’re all guilty of waking up one day and realising that the thing you have done every day, no longer seems the right thing to do.  It can be anything: something minuscule, something gigantor, something physical, something emotional or something mental.  Either way, it just suddenly feels wrong.  We all know that we change but […]

Prioritising the little things

The little things have always been the most important in my world.  Those smiles that make your heart melt, those words that come out of nowhere and mean everything, that laugh that creeps up on you unexpectedly and those people who effortlessly make the bad things go away.  We are all surrounded by the positive […]

The insecurity trap

I’ve just been speaking with someone I met years ago while I was between marriages;  We text pretty much daily, actually.  He’s in a full time relationship now and I’m obviously married so the dynamics of our discussions are slightly different than the were when we knew each other before.  We were always very open […]
